En Ka Fair is right around the corner

The annual En Ka Fair will be held on May 16-17, 2014

In May 1935, the En Ka Society held its first street fair. It was a 
novelty to Winchester and was a huge success, attracting thousands. The first fair was held in the parking lot at the rear of Town Hall, running from Washington Street to what is now known as Sandy’s Island. Brightly painted posts, balloons, and a sign marked the
entrance to the “street.”

Continuing to this day, the En Ka fair marks the beginning of summer for many citizens, old and young alike. The fair is the largest fundraiser for En Ka, raising over $1,000,000 in the last ten years alone. Funds raised through this community-wide event support the organizations grant making efforts through-out the year.

The Fair opens on Friday, May 16 at 5 PM and goes until 11 PM. On Saturday, May 17, the festivities kick off with our parade through the center of Winchester. The Fair opens at 10 AM and goes until 10 PM that night.

Have any questions or suggestions? Want to march in the parade? Care to volunteer at the Fair? You can contact us at Fair@EnKasociety.org

See you at the Fair!
